Root Beer Floats at Famous Dave's

I know you wouldn't typically go to Famous Dave's for a root beer float, but consider it! Honestly, their meat can be good but isn't as great as my family's/Blake's family's BBQ. Anyway, I'm just point this out in case you love root beer floats and want to try this place's. I love how you make it yourself, meaning that there is a little less time for the ice cream to melt and you can control how much soda you add.

Pilgrim Joe's Pumpkin Ice Cream - Trader Joe's

I can't believe I haven't updated in a month! Time flies so fast. Anyway, now it's pumpkin season!! I have to tell you about this ice cream because it's THAT good. I'm picky about pumpkin things because they have to be made of real pumpkin, they can't be too sweet, and they can't be overly spiced. I think this ice cream meets all of those requirements. Soooooo good. It was a little melty in the pic below, but it's usually firm like regular ice cream.

Little Lucca Specialty Sandwich Shop - South San Francisco, CA

Little Lucca
724 El Camino Real
South San Francisco, CA 94080 - Also one in Burlingame
Tel: 650-589-8916

Blake's co-workers told him about this awesome local sandwich place, and it really is good. You definitely get one huge sandwich that can easily be two meals since they pack its insides with deliciousness. People apparently love the special garlic sauce, and now I'm a fan too. And oh, how I've missed that Dutch Crunch! How come I've only seen it in the Bay Area?

Here is what we got:

Lucca’s Chipotle Bird: Chipotle turkey, bacon, cheddar cheese, vidalia onion dressing & roasted red peppers

Lucca's Chipotle Bird. Damn.

Chicken Santa Fe: Mesquite-grilled chicken breast, melted cheddar cheese with roasted raspberry chipotle sauce
These sandwiches did not need salt & pepper. Blake and I added them to an avocado. :)

Macarons from Layer Cake Bakery - Fullerton, CA

Top row: Speculoos & strawberry
Bottom row: Sated caramel & green tea

Layer Cake Bakery
101 North Harbor Blvd., Unit 100

Fullerton, CA92832Yelp

They were so pretty and tasty!! I could eat so many of these because they seem light have the best texture combination of smooth and creamy + soft/slightly chewy and slightly firm. I'm having a hard time explaining it, but hopefully you've had these before. BTW, macarOOns are the ones made of coconut (ew). Macarons are way better.

Here is the green tea macaron up close:
